Once I finished binge-watching Season 1, of course mired in my obsession as I was, I jumped straight into Season 2 with Spock and Captain Pike joining Star Trek Discovery. I have to say Zachary Quinto is still my favorite Spock. That said, I did enjoy the sibbling dynamics and ribbing between Spock and Michael. Though I still haven’t warmed up to Michael. She’s the main character and yet she annoys the hell out of me.
The new plotline of Season 2 was pretty intriguing and kept me watching, one episode after the next. The plot twists kept me guessing and pondering what would happen next. I really like Stamets’ character – he’s this supersmart scientist and yet he has this kindness about him I found endearing.
But my absolute favorite character remains the badass alternate Philippa Georgio. She used to be a villain but got stuck with the Federation. She’s mean and sarcastic, has the best snarky retorts. She’s amazing! She did all these horrible things but she doesn’t pretend she’s not what she is. She doesn’t apologize or give a damn what others think of her. How can I not be awed by her?
For a second season, Star Trek Discovery did a pretty good job.
